Mark Cuban investigated in 2011 for sexual assault at Portland nightclub

Dirk Nowitzki Mark Cuban investigated in 2011 for sexual assault at Portland nightclub

The incident occurred in April 2011, with the victim alleging that Cuban stuck his hand down her jeans and finger her while posing for a photo in Portland.

Cuban was interviewed by Portland cops, and he denied her claim. While the case was never pursued after prosecutors determined there was insufficient evidence, she insists every word she told police was the truth.

"If she told five friends right there and then, then that's what they're gonna tell the judge and I'm gonna be fucked", he was quoted as saying. "I stand behind that report 1,000%". His attorney, Stephen Houze, told WW that the accusations are "false" and that the case was thoroughly investigated.

Last month, Sports Illustrated published a report describing an insensitive Mavericks front office that included inappropriate behavior by former team president Terdema Ussery and the team allowing beat writer Earl Sneed to remain on the staff despite allegations of domestic violence.

The woman said she stopped her boyfriend from going back into the bar and confronting Cuban because he also was drunk, according to the report.

She reportedly told police two weeks later, including in her complaint seven photographs taken of her and Cuban. "In one of the pictures, his arm can be seen behind [the alleged victim] and it appears Cuban is reaching down toward her buttocks".

'Her teeth are clenched, eyes wider than the other pictures and brow raised showing a look of surprise and strain, ' it said. "The complainant requested documentation and investigation of her complaint but has confirmed with me she will not participate in a criminal prosecution and agrees her claim can not be proven".

Later, Cuban lamented the he-said/she-said nature of the allegations. For what it's worth, the alleged victim claimed Cuban seemed heavily intoxicated at the time of the incident.

Cuban answered "no" to all three questions and the examiner concluded that he was telling the truth, Rees wrote, though the prosecutor acknowledged that polygraph results would not be admissible in court.

Cuban continues to deny the incident.

"In summary, there is no evidence to corroborate the complainant's statement and there is evidence contradicting the claim", the memo concluded.
